KState: Early Look 2008 Basketball
Looking at the schedule I'm confident to predict four home wins, (Florida A&M, SE MO State, Emporia State and Oakland) with one road win at Cleveland State and no losses going into the Las Vegas Invitational.
These wins will no doubt grant the Wildcats a seeding along with Iowa, West Virginia, and Kentucky as the other seeds.
When viewing the K-State Wildcat roster I notice seven lettermen with considerable amount of playing time. Of the seven experienced players, there are few points and rebounds. They went by the wayside when Beasley and Walker opted to go professional.
I believe the recruiting ability is reasonably solid, but imo [in my opinion] coaching is suspect. I think this will be proven when mid-season conference play rolls around.
I saw Abdul Hererra play at Hutch JuCo, and believe he will struggle in the Big 12 conference just as Colon and Kent.
The type of offense will certainly need to be a faster pace with tenacious defense hoping for layups and back door cuts due to the huge loss of rebounds and a solid go to player who can create off the dribble.
This 2008-09 Wildcat team will struggle all season and do well to make the NIT come end of season.
This is one fan's opinion. What's yours?
